I am sure that for all the shoppers looking for boats that they may want to up grade the boat . I just went thru a list of upgrade prices . Many boat sellers will say well this may cost this much or just buy used .
Well this is a cost estimate in last 30 days
all in $$
Hard top 15100
Chart plotter 4720
200t 12v 7800
all prices are complete install
Now if you boat has blisters
and has to be stripped 50 to 60 K
on the stripping is for openers.
Saw several boats that owners said 10k but that was just a quick fix and would not really fix problem.
If the boat has blisters
One other thing I found was itf the boat has been for sale
over 6 months either the price
was to high for boat or there were major problems
I found that boats that are fairly priced and in good condition usually sale
in 30-60 days.
Also a good broker can save you tons of time and money
All this is from the last 7 months of looking at boats and trying to buy .
Other advice is don't buy a project
!! Unless you are knowlegable of boats and repair --they turn into Money
pits and can be a real downer
